Maintaining a constant weight on bit (WOB) is critical for efficient drilling operations and extending the life of the drill bit.

MHWirth’s drillstring compensators compensate for rig movements and apply a constant tension in the drill string as well as constant force on the drill bit. Our drillstring compensators are designed to give low dynamic and static friction even in rough weather conditions, giving improved performance when drilling in an extended weather window.

Our compensators have a unique geometrical design with no sheave rotations during compensation, extending the lifetime of the drill line and reducing friction in the system. During locked to bottom operations, the compensators are designed with a true locked open functionality and additional cushioning to prevent incidents.



Unmatched geometrical design gives supreme performance



Our extensive project experience and execution provide complete drilling systems and equipment on an Engineering, Procurement, and Construction basis.
